"During the course of investigation, the NIA has been able to collect a wide variety of evidence ranging from oral testimonies to technical records and results from ballistic tests. The NIA has opted to continue further investigation of the case, since certain hard-core senior leaders of NDFB(S) are yet to be apprehended," a spokesman said. The NIA had registered five cases after the December massacre in which over eighty Adivasi villagers were killed by Bodo militants in Sonitpur, Kokrajhar and Chirang districts. Charge sheets have been submitted in three cases against 18 hard-core NDFB(S) militants so far.
